Government Relations & Association Management



I have had the pleasure of working with the BHL & Associates firm for over 10 years. With Sprint's world headquarters being located in Kansas, it is imperative that we have excellent representation in all things political and especially at the Statehouse. From working with the Kansas Legislature on issues ranging from communications regulation to tax issues, to working with state agencies on numerous policy issues, or directly with the Executive branch, the BHL firm has been crucial to Sprint's success in Kansas. Their legislative knowledge, experience, and personal relationships with public policy makers at all levels are second to none. As a multi-state corporate lobbyist, it is reassuring to know that I have the BHL firm on my team when I cannot always be in Topeka. I truly value the professional and personal relationship I with the BHL firm.

Patrick R. Fucik, National Director, State Legislative Affairs, Sprint

American Council of Engineering Companies of Kansas (ACEC Kansas)

BHL provides full services, including the Executive Director role, for ACEC/KS for over 50 years. They have brought value-added service and innovative ideas to strengthen our engineering business and professional relationships. A key differentiator of BHL is their understanding of engineering issues. They not only understand them, but have a passion about them. They energetically and professionally advocate for them. They have organized and successfully led grassroots efforts supporting qualification-based selection (QBS), seeking additional infrastructure funding, supporting STEM education initiatives, and opposing taxing professional services. They keep a watchful eye out for state and federal legislation detrimental to our profession and our businesses.

Richard A. Worrel, P.E., ACEC Kansas President 2014-2015

American Council of Engineering Companies of Michigan (ACEC Michigan)

The BHL team created a leadership program for ACEC Kansas over ten years ago. This program has been so successful that several other ACEC states, including Michigan, have contracted with BHL to build and run similar programs in our states. BHL has provided our team with excellent service on all fronts. They are very invested in the "bigger picture" of what my association is trying to accomplish. They don't just check the required boxes under the scope of service, they bring passion and vision to ACEC Michigan. They have developed personal relationships with our volunteer leaders, they are always available when we need to talk, and they are physically present throughout the year as we run our leadership program.

Ron Brenke, Executive Director, ACEC Michigan

Kansas Society of Professional Engineers

KSPE has been a client with BHL for over twenty years for management of our society and as a lobbying voice in the statehouse. They plan our annual conference, our finances and membership recruitment and retention. Staff is in tune to the political landscape in Topeka and is very well respected by the Legislature. When issues important to KSPE arise in the statehouse, the legislators know that BHL staff can be trusted to deliver honest, clear information on the subject. In a word, all aspects of their performance is exemplary.

Wayne Nelson, P.E., President 2017-2018


Our corporation has used BHL for 15 years now. Their guidance and drive have been essential to the growth of our state advocacy efforts. We also have learned from them the importance of relationships with public policy decision - makers. The BHL staff have a great reputation in the legislature and have regularly helped us gain access to the right legislators at the right times. Many thanks to BHL for their help over these many years.

As a Board member of KSIA for the past 7 years I have worked closely with several staff members of Braden Heidner Lowe & Associates. They go above and beyond in working with their clients from minor to complex issues, always attentive to the details, in a timely manner with amazing attitudes. I truly appreciate everything they do for KSIA.

Kansas Association of Defense Counsel

Braden Heidner Lowe & Associates has provided management services to the Kansas Association of Defense Counsel for many years. We would not be where we are today as an organization without the guidance, support and assistance provided by BHL through oversight of our finances, membership,communication, legislation, development and maintenance of our website, and planning of our quarterly board meetings and annual membership/CLE meeting. The BHL team is simply the best in the business.

When FPA-GKC hired BHL as our Chapter Executive, it was like a dark cloud lifted. They walked us through every step of our transition and hit the ground running. BHL's team of professionals has helped our board and our chapter run smoothly and efficiently.
